, pennsylvania and rhode island, clearing the way for help from fema. let's get right to bill karins who has the latest forecast. what do you have? >> the storm has strengthened instead of 75 so that's very impressive that this storm continues to lower its pressure, even going over the cooler waters now and it's only about 386 miles away from new york city. it's actually moving at a pretty decent clip at 15 miles per hour so it's going to move in in a hurry. a lot of people are waking up looking outside. maybe it's not raining where you are and not that breezy as when you went to bed, but, trust me, it's on its way and the power will go out in a hurry for millions of people especially southern new england all the way down through jersey, pennsylvania, maryland and delaware. the center of the storm, a pretty well-defined eye. pin needle of an eye and the hurricane hunters have been flying in and out of the storm getting a bearing on how wide the wind field s the intense winds are maybe about 200 miles within this center so those are not onshore getting some of those tropical storm force gusts

policies, but a lot of homeowners in fema-designated flood zones didn't have a choice, they had to buy flood insurance. so they're likely to be covered as well because flood insurance policy covers not only for a flood, but also a storm surge. >> we also want to remind you that refrigerated food can spoil quickly during a power outage. to keep items in the refrigerator as cool as possible, the centers for disease control and prevention suggests packing together dairy items, fish, meat, and also with eggs in a cooler with ice. tony. >> use a food thermometer to check food that's been in a dark refrigerator. anything that's more than 40 degrees fahrenheit, throw it out. for the freezer section, a half full freezer will keep food cold -- will keep food cold enough for about a day. a full freezer protects frozen foods for about 48 hours. and avoid opening either the refrigerator or the freezer to keep the interiors cold for as long as possible. >>> we want to thank everyone who has sent in their pictures, their videos, the picture behind us was taken in boyds maryland. >> obviously we can
for you? >> well i think we've got to get -- obviously fema is already working and we are doing assessments as we speak. we are primarily concerned about safety because a lot of power lines are down, and there are gas leaks, and we try to keep people away from those. people, if they go back, if they are in their homes should be very careful about the power lines and gas leaks. that is a big concern right now. then the assessment is going on as well for fema so that we can get the federal funds in to help out. jon: i guess the silver lining here at some point is that, you know, when you rebuild some of these areas, homes, businesses and so forth, you can build them better than before, but right now that seems an awful longtime away, huh? >> it really does. i'm going to do whatever i can to get all the federal funds in. one of the things i'd like to do is to have the federal government wave the local match. for a lot of the things there is a local match of 10 to 15%. these towns won't be able to afford that. we are working on it. right now still the concern is safety more than any
ahead of time, we have been able to get over a thousand fema officials in place, repositioned, we have been able to get supplies, food, medicine, water, emergency generators to assure that hospitals and law-enforcement offices are able to stay up and running as they are responding. we are going to continue to push as hard as we can to make sure power is up throughout the region, this is mostly of local responsibility, private utilities lean forward but we are doing everything to provide additional resources so that we can expedite getting power up and running in these communities in places like newark, new jersey where you have 90% of people without power. we can't have a situation where that lasts for days on end. my instructions to the federal agency has been do not figure out why we cannot do something. i want you to cut through red tape, through bureaucracy, no excuse for in action. i want every agency to lean forward and make sure we are getting the resources where they are needed as quickly as possible. i want to repeat my message to the federal government. no bureaucracy, no red
